Using Moodle to homeschool our three children in three different grades. We subscribe to multiple resources online. I've already installed Moodle on my server.
I was hoping to use Moodle as a way to add a daily journal, chores list, link out to other resources we have subscribed to (link activity) and add supplemental learning materials for our each of our children, like an assignment where they reflect on a chapter of a book they read that day.
Most importantly, when each child logs in I want them to see a list of what needs to be completed that day, not having to manually click to go into each individual course.
The problem I've run into is there are too many options in Moodle and setting this up is extremely time consuming and complex since I'm not 100% savvy on what I should be doing. I don't need to setup gradebook or competency features. Just looking for basic functionality listed above.
Would someone be so kind as to walk me through what I should be doing? I'm just trying to pull everything together into one easy place with a daily, interactive interface to combine the learning experience for my kids. Any help would be appreciated.
